WALKER LAUDS CITY CHARACTER IN DEBUT VICTORY

16 January 2022

City debutant Jamie Walker heaped praise on the character shown by the Bantams, following their 2-1 triumph over Salford City.

Two second-half goals ensured City came from a goal behind to earn the points the Utilita Energy Stadium.

Walker hailed the spirit the team showed on the afternoon, and is hopeful it will build momentum moving forward.

He said: “We were delighted to get the three points, and the boys showed great character to come from a goal behind.

“Against 10 men, it is never easy, and they were set up well.

“I came here to get game time but, first and foremost, it is all about the team.

“The reason I came ] was to get back on the pitch and playing football with a smile on my face.

“I did that today, and after about 60/70 minutes I did start to feel a bit leggy as I have not been playing much football.

“I was delighted with my performance and it was a good start.

“We were pleased to get the three points and, hopefully, we can use this result as a springboard to really kick on.”

The Scot was also full of praise for the support the Bantams received from the Valley Parade faithful on the afternoon.

Walker was pleased to be able to send City's supporters home happy, and is hoping to show them what he is capable of in future outings.

He added: “It was fantastic. The fans stuck by us from the first minute until the last, and I was delighted we got the winning goal to send them home happy.

“I always want to work hard as a player, and that is what the supporters always love.

“Hopefully, in the coming weeks when I get a bit sharper and more game time, I can produce a few more things going forward.”
